Course content

Gain the skills and knowledge you need to pursue a PhD in fundamental theoretical physics. This course bridges the gap between undergraduate physics and maths, and the research frontier.

During your studies, you'll acquire a unique insight into topics including the unification of fundamental forces, the early universe, quantum gravity and quantum field theory.

This course is designed to start your research career and was founded by the Theoretical Physics Group at Imperial College London. This group is internationally renowned for its world leading research and established by Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam.

Your studies will conclude with a summer working on a supervised project in a specialist area. This can involve original research that expands on your existing knowledge of theoretical physics and leads to the writing of a dissertation.
